The Acclimate 2251TMB photoelectric detector by System Sensor uses onboard software to combine signals from photo and thermal elements.
The Acclimate 2251TMB photoelectric detector includes thermal detection at 135 F. It uses advanced onboard software to combine the signals from the photo and thermal elements to create a true multi-criteria detector capable of rejecting nuisance sources but still responding quickly to real fires. The Acclimate detector also can adjust its sensitivity according to its environment. Using advanced software, Acclimate continuously samples the air in the environment and adjusts its detection parameters and alarm threshold accordingly. It does this automatically without user intervention.
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
